Item description for A Decembered Grief: Living with Loss While Others Celebrating by Harold Ivan Smith & Alan D. Wolfelt...

"Living With Loss While Others are Celebrating"

The holiday season can be very painful for those who've recently lost friends or family members. In this compassionate devotional, Smith offers practical encouragement and suggestions for those who find themselves mourning while the rest of the world is celebrating. Scripture, quotes, and lyrics from Christmas carols complement the text.

Publishers Description
Suffering the loss of a loved one at any time of the year is difficult, yet during the holidays or special occasions, those grieving experience a more intense sense of loss. The world is moving forward and celebrating life and all its blessings, yet for grievers, a darkness pervades the holiday.This book is an invitation to Christmas and its companion holidays of the season which compose a grueling triathlon which begins on Thanksgiving and continues unabated for forty-five days until the last of the bowl games on New Year's Day. Through quotes, prayers, Scriptures and the words of the author, A Decembered Grief is designed to guide the reader on the journey beyond 'the shadow' and directly through 'the valley of death.'

Reviews - What do customers think about Decembered Grief?

A Decembered Grief: Living with Loss while Others are Celebrating  Jan 11, 2007
This book is one of the best on the market for grieving. It covers how to handle the process, gives tips on how to handle Holiday celebrations, birthdays, when people say stupid things.

It is written in 3-4 page chapters---easy to read and very effective. I have given this for about 5 years to people ---especially in the case of a sudden death, and or the death of a young person.

Think it is one of the best available.
A step in a healing direction  Jun 2, 2005
When I first picked up this book, I thought, "Is it going to be good?," and I was pleasantly surprised. It helped me reach a horizon of encouragement to continue on after I lost a loved one. It sought to gently answer the questions and anger many people have in a state of mourning. I highly reccommend this book to anyone who is looking for comfort on a page.
A comforting book  Oct 4, 2003
This book can heal the wounded soul. It is an eloquent reminder that when we suffer we do not suffer alone.

If you're interested in this kind of book, I'd highly recommend Christmas Gifts, Christmas Voices, by John Allen.

Excellent Gift for Holiday Grief  Oct 17, 2001
The format of this book is "just right" for grievers. Short sections allow the reader to read as little or as much as they can handle at one sitting. This is an excellent gift for the seasons of Fall and Winter when society inundates us with holiday celebrations and togetherness. Since September 11, 2001, this book ought to become a best-seller. I've given out at least a dozen copies to family and friends.
